Can anyone say "scapegoats"?

0 ( +3 / -3 )

Someone didn't like the outcome of a bet. That's probably what happened but definitely "scapegoats." I doubt these bets were between 3 players only. There was probably some high level people involved too but we'll never know.

Exactly, making a big deal out of this when the Nippon Professional Baseball rigged the game balls a two years ago and no one was fired, fined or kicked out. I don't think they really apologized either.

These guys are toast. Talk about history repeating itself. It's the Black Mist all over again. Any baseball fans out there who want the autographs of these guys will just need to go to AEON, where they will be bagging groceries.

Giants are lucky they are just a bunch of farm leaguers.
